Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings
Creamy, comforting chicken and dumplings recipe made in the crock pot that couldn’t be easier to make. Just throw everything in your slow cooker and dinner is ready!
Is there any meal more comforting than Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings? I love Chicken and Dumplings. Love it. This is a really, ridiculously easy recipe for those comfort food craving days where you can just throw everything in the crock pot and let the crock pot (or slow cooker, whatever you may call it) do all of the work for you!
The hardest part is shredding the chicken with two forks once it’s cooked – not too bad! The chicken will pretty much be falling apart once it’s cooked, anyways, so it makes for an easy task.
I really hope you try this Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings soon. It’s a meal I make often in our home since it’s so easy and just really warms you to your core. I’m making this a short-but-sweet post because it’s 1:30 in the morning where I live, so bottom line is – TRY this recipe! It’s perfect on these cold winter days (which show no sign of relenting any time soon here in upstate NY.)
If you’re looking for more comforting fall/winter meals, you will love this Crock Pot Chicken Taco Soup. I love that soup because it’s really a “dump and go” meal that you can just keep warm throughout the day or night when your family has busy schedules.
Also, one of my favorite crock pot chicken dinners is this Crock Pot Fiesta Chicken & Rice. It has been very popular on my blog for years! I also have my eye on this Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan from my friend Sandra’s blog. Enjoy!
- 4 Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless)
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1 Can Cream of Celery Soup
- 3½ Cups Chicken Broth
- 1 cup white or yellow Onion, diced
- 1 Cup Celery, diced
- 1 Cup Carrots, diced
- 2 Chicken bouillon cubes
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 Tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 10 oz. can of refrigerated biscuits*
- Add everything into the crock pot/slow cooker with the exception of the biscuits.
- Cook on low for about 6 hours. (If your crock pot cooks hot, check it at 5 hours or have it automatically turn to warm if you know your crock pot cooks food more quickly than normal). About an hour (give or take) before serving, remove chicken and pull into pieces with two forks (large chunks are fine) and return to the soup mixture.
- Tear raw biscuits in half or quarters (depending on size) and add on top of the soup mixture for 45 minutes before serving and put the lid back ON so the biscuits will cook through and steam.
- After 45 minutes they should have fluffed and expanded from the heat. Make sure they are not doughy in the center when ready to serve and serve hot!
This looks like a delicious bowl of warm and comforting stew!
Thank you Amy!!
Comfort food in the crockpot… what could be better?!
I agree!! Thanks Marie!
We LOVE eating chicken and dumplings in the winter! I’m loving this crockpot version – looks like it could save us some time!
It’s definitely a time saver!
I really need me some of this crock pot chicken and dumplings.. such good old fashioned comfort food which I love!! Xx
I hope you try it!!
Mmm comfort food at its best! This sounds so perfect for the cold winter!
I love chicken and dumplings too! Never made it in the crockpot, though — what a wonderful idea. Fun recipe — thanks.
Thank you so much!!
Great looking crock pot dish!
I need to throw this in the crock pot next week! Major comfort food here!
You will love it!!
Oh my goodness, I don’t even remember the last time I had chicken and dumplings! Probably years ago! I love that this is in the crockpot! Done – must try this!
It’s so good!!
I don’t think there’s anything more comforting than this. It looks glorious!
ahhhhhh the best! perfect, classic comfort food! just the thing I need on a FREEZING day like today!
chicken and dumplings sound sooooo wonderfuly delicious on a day like today – cool and rainy! i will definitely need to try this!
Thanks hope you like it!!
I’ve never had chicken and dumplings, but I need this creamy comfort in my life. This winter has to end sometime, right?
I have to try this recipe. It looks ridiculously delicious!
what a comforting dish!
Not a great fan of celery was wondering if there is another soup that could be used instead?
You can use another can of cream of chicken in its place! Even cream of mushroom would work.
I am trying this today.. Trying to use my crock pot more for 2014.
I usually make Pioneer Woman’s chicken and dumplings but its not something I can make on a weeknight. I’ll have to give this version a try.
I’ve never tried hers- maybe I should!!
I’ve never made chicken and dumplings but now I really want to knowing it can be done ina slow cooker.
Anything that was cooked on a Crock Pot does not look always looks goo…! It looks too soupy. I would prefer my chicken and dumpling to be cooked the old way..
To each his own! 🙂
This sounds very yummy. I think I will try this recipe. We have also tried tearing the biscuits up small and rolling in a little flour before putting in crockpot. It thickens it up a little.
Funny you should say that because I just tried that the other day and you’re right! It got nice and thick.
Hi Ashley, made this yesterday and it was over the moon, thanks. My biscuits didn’t come out nice and browned like yours, any suggestions?
Jackie, thank you so much for letting me know! So glad you liked it. Sometimes when I’m a huge hurry for the biscuits to get done, I partially bake them in the oven! Then I stick them in the crock pot to cook the rest of the way. Hence, why sometimes they get nice and browned on top. You should try that next time! Sorry if the photo was a little deceiving. Normally, I DO just cook them in the crock pot and don’t bother with the oven.

This looks so good, but I was wondering if I could use real dumpling or something besides the biscuits.
Sure you can! Even homemade biscuits will do. I have used them before 🙂
Just wondering if any liquid is added besides the cream soups, such as water?
never mind; I just answered my own question
This recipe looks so yummy! Do you have the nutrition information? I’m afraid it might have too many carbs for diabetics. Thanks!
Hi Bonnie! I am so sorry but I don’t have the nutritional info for this dish. I always found it so difficult to get accurate counts. I’m sure there’s ways to make it healthier – including making your own cream of soups! Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
Thanks, Ashley. I will see if I can make it more diabetic friendly and figure out the nutritional info.
**Making it, now…I chopped the chicken breasts into pieces, instead of cooking it whole…When doing dumplings…what is the best setting??..I am going to try Medium…I will let you know…How it goes…(Y)
**The consistency was separated…& Yes,I did skinless & boneless chicken breasts…When I added the biscuit mix it didnt turn into a dumpling,so after waiting I ended up stirring the batter into the soup & adding some cream & flour & made it into a Cream Soup…This recipe wasnt what I expected but…after my adjustments it was a Very Salvageable Yummy Chicken Soup….:)
I read this morning to make shredding chicken easy use your mixer.
I’ve done that before! Brilliant!
This recipe is bananas… I did add some adobo to it myself… Only 1/2 tablespoon…so good.
Hi Ashley I don’t like using chicken breasts on recipes that call for chicken for the simple fact that it’s too dry so I use rotisserie chicken instead such better flavor … I debone it then stick into crock pot and I’m making my own dumplings for this recipe , thank you for this recipe 🙂
Loved this ! Came out awesome ! cut biscuits into small bits ???? n worked well with this recipe as well as making my own dumplings
I love this recipe. I tried it last week and honestly was shocked (sorry) how amazing the flavor was. I used 2 cans cream of chicken though since I didn’t have anything else and I used an 8 oz biscuit can and tore it up. I’m going to just go all out and do the 14 oz can instead next time because those biscuit dumplings were amazing. For fresh flavor when serving I added some frozen peas. It cooled down the dish and had a really lovely flavor. This is definitely a favorite comfy food dish. We are in Chicago and it has been a terribly cold winter. Thank you for this recipe.
